Question Red zone reports?

Well, my own inability to get out has me very curious... what are people finding out there for late season action?

FredA's near miss scenario was promising, especially the water temps and bait.

Recent South Cty RI reports are scary... but I've heard amazing reports from Sandy Hk NJ and am thinking seriously about making the drive soon... lots of guys going to or already in Harkers area down south. North shore to Maine in mackerel mode. Probably start getting some scanned pics from friends down in the Maryland area any day now.

I am finding the trout fishing to be good but my last few
saltwater missions (cape and RI) have been a bust with the
exception of some bluefish.

Have heard good things about Sandy hook from a friend in the area but Harkers reports have been absolutely BLEAK. The water is still to warm down there. We were on the verge of scheduling a trip but decided to bail due to the reports. Going to Laguna Madre to do some sight fishing instead

South County shore fishing was lousy yesterday. We went from Napatree (all the way out on the point) to Quonny and didn't see any signs of fish....no bumps on our flies either. Everyone we talked to had the same story.

The canal is loaded with bait. Macks are coming through and deep jiggers are getting 3'+ fish. I got skunked there last night but I couldn't catch the 12:30 -1:30am prime time.

Thanks, keep 'em coming...

Jim, I am going to have to try that with the big guns sometime this week.

Probably on to Sandy Hook later in the month.

Red zone reports

Well, Sandy Hook WAS hot for a week or so, but things have slowed way down with the warmer weather and water. Here is hoping that things will cool down soon, before the big push goes by in deep water. I will continue to post as things develop.

Best regards,

-Doc

On Nov. 2nd they were in the canal. Unless they decide to swim North, they are coming that way. It's all about the bait and lucking into them now.

Juro - I was at Sandy Hook on Saturday and it was dead but a beautiful day none the less. Talked with a few locals and it appears I was a week late.. of course. However, I got the impression they were not ready to give up for the season yet.
